Herewith we would like to give you a brief update on the effects of the corona virus on our business activities.
Currently we have only very minor limitations because neither we from Hesterberg nor our main suppliers are directly affected by the virus so far. As communicated already on the
27th of February 2020, at the moment we only have delays in the supply of some variants of the HESTAL fasteners 681, 664, 662 as well as some pillar pockets and tarpaulin tensioners. For these products we have activated alternative sources of supply, however, some delays cannot be avoided. We will communicate them separately to you. Unfortunately, we will need to increase our prices for some of these products.
We have implemented extensive in-house safety measures which change some of our business routines and processes. In case of resulting delays, we kindly ask you for your understanding, but the safety of our employees has top priority.
If you have any questions about individual products or orders, please contact your Hesterberg sales representatives.
Stay safe and all the best for you and all you colleagues in these turbulent times.
As at 27th February – Effects of the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2)
Dear Sirs and Madams;
Herewith we would like to inform you that due to restrictions (such as travel and movement limitations as well as company closings) to contain the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) in China there may be delivery delays and longer procurement times for some of our products.
We continuously analyze the situation and together with our local partners and suppliers we try to minimize these effects. In particular, some variants of the HESTAL fasteners 681, 664, 662 as well as some pillar pockets and tarpaulin tensioners are currently affected. Wherever possible, we either try to use alternative sources of supply (which may lead to price increases) or to offer you available product variants. In any case, we kindly ask you to consider these restrictions in your planning, product configurations and procurement times.
If you have any questions about individual products or orders, please contact your Hesterberg sales representatives. If we detect any concrete effects on your existing orders, framework contracts, etc., we will contact you again.
